Zip-weather strip / Seal

Zip-weather strip

How to prevent wind blowing in through the window gap?
The old weather strips can be divided into two categories. One is installed in the trough of window frame, it’s hard to install and as wind blow the glue directly, it will be not sticky after a while. The other one will stick window and frame together, so we can’t open the window.
The zip-weather strip which combines zip with weather strip can avoid all the problems. Just stick one half on the window, the other half on the frame. It’s easy to install and wind will not blow the glue. We can both open and seal the window with the zip.
